I agree. It's an absolute pain to build a wxPython application that  
looks exactly right on several platforms (specifically Windows and  
MacOS). IIRC several widgets also behave noticeably different on  
MacOS and windows, although the details escape me at the moment.

I haven't seriously looked at PyGUI yet, but if tkinter were replaced  
I'd prefer a simple pythonic interface and that is what PyGUI claims  
to be.
